By tradition, the senior class dedicates their year-
book to an outstanding member of the Curry community .
The class of 1976 has so honored Mrs, Barbara F.
"Ma Rett" has been the Assistant to the Dean of Stu-
dent Life for three years. Since coming to Curry sev-
en years ago, Mrs. Pettingill was the force behind
making Scholars B Hall co-ed, thus giving Curry its
first co-ed residence. She has always been a familiar
face on campus and a great inspiration in the progress
of the College. For this we extend to her many thanks.
The class of 1976 wishes "Ma Rett" the best of luck
in the future and we hope she will always remember us,
as we will never forget her.

In Memory of Pamela Wrinch
Where dunes resist the green eroding tides,
Bayberries grey in winter, and winds whip grass
Into submissiveness. Northeasters twist
The pines, and only rock's immutable.
This is a fitting place for Kore, wintering.
To stand in brief return within Demeter's
Home, to trace the rhythm of vo luted shells.
The spiralling of time upon itself.
Well might Demeter see with joy that daughter's
Generosity and strength, her quick perceivance.
Gentleness, as if she brought from deeper
Halls some knowledge never pawned for power.
But short was that reunion; without flowers.
That final summering, as they, unknowing.
Walked along the ocean shore to Eleusinian mysteries.
Mute evergreens there stood aghast to watch
The all-transforming flames reach toward the stars.
We at these rites stand in the outer court
And by the flaming toches, final flowers.
We now renounce, before the Maker of the wind
And rock, our first audacity— when we
(Like Pluto and Demeter) presumed to call
Her "ours"--and then the last audacity—
When we presumed to know the seasons of the gods.
And how, as then, at dawn the finite fire
Pales in the great infinity of light.
(In Greek mythology Kore is the daughter of the earth-goddess Demeter. While they
are together earth flowers and is fruitful; but Pluto, god of the underworld, abducts
Kore During her stay underground, the earth is winter-bound and barren; but Kore is
allowed brief visits above ground, and these times of the reunions of Demeter and
Kore are the fruitful, flowering seasons. The Greeks celebrated the mysteries of
Demeter and Kore at Eleusis. There, after the participants had walked along the
coast from Athens to Eleusis, the celebrations of the first night of the mysteries took
place by torchlight outside the temple itself.)

A Song of Greatness
When I hear the old men
Telling of heroes.
Telling of great deeds
Of ancient days,
When I hear that telling
Then I thinl< within me
I too am one of these
When I hear the people
Praising great ones.
Then I know that I too
Shall be esteemed;
I too when my time comes
Shall do mightily.

A new memijer to our college community exist
above "the loose caboose." It is a multi-purpose
room; housed there are: two ping-pong tables, one
pin-ball machine, one pool table, checker and
backgammon boards, and a good time.
Although it lacks a name, and is still in its'
growing stages, the possibilities are numerous.

Curry's easy access to Boston expands our
facilities many times over. In four years
here we have all been in to the city for many
special events. And some of the benefits of
Boston have made their way out to Curry.
The next few pages are pictures compiled
over the past four year period. For the most
part they are of concerts in the Orpheum,
Music Hall and Boston Garden. The others
are celebities that have visited the radio
When I first came to Curry I would have thought anyone
was crazy if they said I would be the editor of the year-
book. But I also did not know that when I was a fresh-
man that the editor would walk up to me, hand me a
camera and tell me to take pictures. So I learned. For
the next two years I was the photography editor of the
book, but still this was a far cry from being Editor-in-
Chief. Finally, last year I was asked to take the job
and must have refused ten times. But here I am today
writing the Editor's message.
1 do not regret taking the job one bit. Sure, there were
rough times but there was always someone to help out.
We had some problems with our publisher and as a re-
sult had to switch. I was pretty confused while all this
was going on and have to thank Warren Bazirgan, our
faculty advisor for his help in straightening out these
Last year when Editor Pat Sheridan was telling me about
a staff, she said that Ruth Burack would be there to
help out with things that no one else wanted to do. She
was right. Ruth took care of distributing the books and
mailing them out which is nothing but a big pain, and
not in the neck. She did some typing, ran errands, and
came through with a few pleasant surprises like finding
pictures that were desperately needed, Ruth will be
the Editor next year and she is already as well organ-
ized as I was going into my last month.
Nancee Chalifour and Mary Carneiro were possibly my
biggest helpers. Not only did they do their sections of
the book, but they typed and typed more and helped in
any other way they could.
Jo-Anne Roderiques was our most experienced year-
booker and we all were helped by some of her ideas.
She was responsible for the Student Life section which
is the largest section of the book.
Steve Mechlinski was the Photography Editor, making
sure that any event was covered by himself or someone
else. Also of great assistance as far as photography
is concerened was Charlie Flagg of Miller Studio. He
did all our printing and processing as well as covering
most of the important events.
Finally, I would like to thank Chris Sheehan whc as
Business Manager helped raise over $1,000.00.
And Bob Murphy from American Publishers, who came
and picked up the pieces of our publishing problems.
I would like to explain a few things about this year's
book. Everyone wants their book to be a little different
so I decided to turn the book sideways and put he bind-
ing on the short side. This can make for different lay-
out ideas and I hope that we have done a good job with
One thing that I do not like to see in a yearbook is a
page loaded with pictures So we kept the layout fairly
light, at least with the candids. I feel orettv much the
same about copy. Many times yearbooks can be very
corny if they are filled with copy, because you run out
of things to say and how to say them. So we tried to
keep it to a minimum.
I hope you enjoy the book; I do. And take it for what it
is, a book of pictures to be felt and remembered.
